Honeywell used to use Boeing 720 N720H as an engine testbed. When it was retired in 2007, it was the oldest flying Boeing jetliner.


On approach to land on Runway 26 on December 27, 2007. A fifth jet engine was mounted n the starboard fuselage.



N720H made one more flight two days later and was broken up at Sky Harbor in 2008. It has been replaced with Boeing 757-225 N757HW.

Terrific stuff Brian. Although they aren't too old, I love these "older" images and the history they capture.

Thanks Jeff! I waited two hours past the scheduled landing time for that 720 to show up. I have more testbed photos to post.
